I was doing some random googling re any link between hypo and high blood sugar when I came across this.It is a study of TSH and T4 in (cannot spell) euthyroid? normal thyroid patients. They found links with high bad cholesterol plus other health problems in patients within normal range, by normal they meant TSH up to 3. It was suggested that a lower TSH and T4 be seen as significant when looking at the lower incidence of various health problems.
I was googling due to my cataract. Bit of a mystery as to why it's there. Its far more advanced in one eye so seems unlikely to be systemic but diabetes would be the main cause of cataracts in someone my age. I'm trying to predict how long the good eye will last as I need new glasses. My main ones are very fragile and I'm hoping an optician will prescribe an old prescription for my bad eye an a better one for the good one. Or just a repeat, pre cataract varifocal prescription. If anyone can message with experiences here I'd be grateful. Because of asinometropia, a difference in image size,thought I'd appeal to the google Kings and Queens amongst us, both eyes need surgery. it would be difficult to make the bad eye short sighted enough. I'm not willing to take the risk of surgery if my good eye doesn't need it. I'm used to poor vision in one eye but dependent on specs, the first optician would not write a prescription.
I'm not diabetic but had a borderline reading. I tested my own blood sugar and it did seem to get very high , ketone range for short periods of time before falling. Could these surges in blood sugar explain the cataract? And is insulin resistance related to hypo? I have a tiny cataract in my good eye which doesn't seem to have changed Could the Levo have helped? I need to get it checked. My bad eye went overnight.
